Christopher Banke recognized his passion for dog training very early, when he was just a teen and he started training his Doberman, Dana. In fact, he established the Algemeiner Schutzhund Club when he was only 15 because he was certain that he had found his true calling. While there, an older, more experienced trainer named Margarete Iaquinto, caused him to direct his passion for training to German Shepherds. It was good that she did, since he worked to become one of the best trainers in the United States. That distinction, which he earned through hard work, brought him a lot of dogs to train, which in turn improved his skills to an even greater degree. He became so good that he opened his own dog training business, “Chris Banke Protection Dog Trainer” before he had even turned 20.
